Non-prescription Medicines

Fourth edition

Alan Nathan - Freelance pharmacy writer and consultant, London, UK

Non-prescription Medicines is the only publication in the UK that deals with available OTC medicines comprehensively and in depth.

This new edition has been revised and updated to reflect amendments in legal category status of several products from prescription-only (POM) to pharmacy sale (P) status.

Over-the-counter (OTC) medicines currently available in the UK are reviewed in alphabetically arranged chapters on the conditions that they are licensed to treat. 44 common conditions are covered and new chapters on Chlamydia, Obesity and Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia have been added.

Each chapter includes:

  • an introduction to the condition
  • detailed description of the available products, including mode of action, side-effects, cautions and contraindications, interactions and dosage
  • product selection points
  • product recommendations.

This vital resource will enable pharmacists, GPs, nurses and other healthcare professionals to make well-informed recommendations and to give sound advice to their patients.

Non-prescription Medicines is also available as an eBook.
